Francis and the Cookie Dough

This week, Jacob and I made cookies together. While we were scooping the cookies on to the pan, this conversation transpired—out of nowhere. Clearly, I had to share it.



Jacob: “Francis loves cookie dough.”


Me: “Francis? Who is Francis?”


Jacob (without even looking at me): “The pope.”



Let it be known: Pope Francis loves cookie dough. God made all good things, right?
